So true. It works as catalyst for scarce resources and proliferate to maximum.

I agree with Mijan.

Salem Abusaif
Agree with the post and the two previous comments

Living in a human society and finding Happiness is a mirage and ever elusive. You face conflict the moment you start your day, which may lead to a sleepless night at the end of your busy day..

Ken Tasch
“Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”
― Jim Rohn

Bert Robinson
Anjan, Agreed, Even our Constitution states Right to the Pursue of Happiness. But happiness for many remains is very elusive.

Mijan Rahman
Thanks everybody for contributing! @ Anjan @Ken @bert Sir, yes! Happiness is one of the most elusive and variable word. I think 'happiness' is the most widely used but the most narrowly understood word! Does happiness mean absence of unhappiness? Do the experiences of happiness are individual or universal? Could it be possible to define happiness objectively? Does the happiness depend on its sources or its observers? Do we have objectively verifiable indicators to measure happiness? Would you please share your thoughts on the issue?!

Search happiness is an essential purpose in life and whenever possible we should try to make our activities bring us happiness.

Prof. Mohammed R. Ahmed
The experience of happiness is the result of environment surrounding an individual, group, or nation. Bhutan's Gross National Happiness is a good example of how a tiny nation is measuring its prosperity by a measure of Happiness...

Happiness/ optimistic mind the key to solve problems.

Gandhi Heryanto
Happiness is a state of mind or an option. You can have everything in the world and still be miserable. Or you can have relatively little and feel unbounded joy. There is a stimulus to be chosen and responded on what you find in your life. As Viktor Frankl said that “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

Abdul Baasit Sathar
Behind every decision we make, happiness remain as the core reason

Hi Mijan, depends on how we define happiness. Some might be happy dealing with challenges while some may be overwhelmed. It is advisable to develop a mindset that learns to be happy and stays positive in adverse circumstances.

Gunjan Bhatia
Aristotle has said Happiness to be the Ultimate Purpose of Human Existence.
I believe that doing what we like is freedom and liking what we do is Happiness!

Gandhi Heryanto
Don't aim at success - the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue... as the unintended side-effect of one's personal dedication to a course greater than oneself. (Viktor Frankl, Man's Search For Meaning)

Do not aim for happiness but be happy under all conditions. It keeps our happiness and capacity to achieve in tact.

If you believe happiness is not optional to maximize people, how would you lead differently? Should we lead with happiness in mind?
Mijan Rahman
Bert Robinson
The need for Happiness was recognized by the founders of our country, as they wrote into the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

We are mostly unhappy not because of absence of happiness, we are not happy just because of we are not good at predicting what will make us happy!
To me happiness is the essence of human life and Learning, Working and Playing are the ultimate sources of happiness; Working and Playing are same subjects with different objects and also the ultimate source of Learning. Learning by Doing is the most enjoyable Playing and the most efficient way of Working.
Mijan Rahman
Prof. Mohammed R. Ahmed
Happiness is not a random occurrence... If we are not good at predicting..Why? Happiness is an experience as a result of a human process. We need to understand how our mind works. Learn to manage emotions, and uses energy to generate synergy to achieve desired outcomes such as working and playing... and be happy. If achieving is happiness.. we need to focus on Emotional Intelligence (EI). http://goo.gl/qHQEf6

Letting go of toxic people is just as important as EQ.
Mijan Rahman
But what is happiness? Can we define it?
Mijan Rahman
Bernard Njemanze
I tend to totally agree with Mijan, however, i still believe that happiness is a matter of choice; which is relative to an individual`s situation or context.
Mijan Rahman
Olayide Atanda-Obalakun
I concur with Mijan. People perform at their optimum when they are happy doing what they do. In that situation the employer and the employee are all winners.
